Heavy-Duty Towing

Not all towing companies can handle every type of vehicle. In fact, most towing services are designed to handle a large pickup truck at most. But what does that mean for larger vehicles, such as tractor-trailers and buses? It means that you need a heavy-duty towing service.

Because of the weight and expense, there is a lot at stake when towing large vehicles. As a result, there is no margin for error. We work with precision and care, ensuring that your vehicle gets to where it needs to be without any problems. Among the vehicles we can safely transport are:

  •         Buses
  •         Box Trucks
  •         Motor Homes and RVs
  •         Limousines
  •         Semi-Trucks
  •         Tractor-Trailers

Fuel Delivery

Fuel deliveries in CarlsbadMany drivers have experienced the unexpected inconvenience of running out of fuel.  Unfortunately, some stranded motorists try to obtain fuel by taking unnecessary risks such as walking through unfamiliar terrain or accepting rides from strangers.  Rather than take such risks, residents of Carlsbad can make a quick call to NK Towing.  Twenty-four hours a day, we will travel to your location and deliver enough gasoline or diesel fuel to get your vehicle running.  In addition, if your vehicle requires gas, you can specify the grade of fuel you receive.  No matter when you call, we’ll reach your destination in no more than half an hour.


Car Lockout Service in Carlsbad, CaFew things are as annoying as accidentally locking your keys inside your vehicle.  Regrettably, the unexpected emotional strain of a lockout can lead to hasty, ill-considered actions that actually do more harm than good.  Instead of trying to force your way into your vehicle, you can call the professionals at NK Towing.  No matter where you are in the Carlsbad area, we’ll drive directly to your location and unlock your vehicle.  If your vehicle has a traditional mechanical locking system, we will help you gain access right away.  If your vehicle has a modern electronic locking system, we’ll help you contact the manufacturer and figure out how to resolve the situation as quickly as possible.

Battery Services

Battery replacement and roadside assistance in CarlsbadBatteries are among the most likely components to fail in any vehicle.  In addition, the battery in your vehicle is connected to other systems that can also develop failures.  The professionals at NK Towing have the knowledge required to identify battery-related issues.  We also know how to tell the difference between battery problems and other electrical issues.  We begin by testing your battery and examining the condition of its terminals.  Depending on what we find, we offer suitable solutions that include battery replacement and terminal replacement.  If you need a new battery, we have affordable, high-quality options that come with a full six-year warranty.

Our technicians can also save you unnecessary expense by determining when a battery replacement will not solve your problems.  That’s important because several other issues — including generator malfunctions and electrical system short circuits — can closely mimic the effects of a drained battery.  We cut out the guesswork and identify the specific issues affecting your vehicle.  If your electrical system needs to be repaired, we can tow your vehicle to your preferred mechanic.
